country forward, my husband, our president, barack obama. ( cheers and applause ) thank you. god bless you. god bless america. >> first lady of the united states, the most popular women in the country. more popular than her husband. certainly more popular than anybody else in this room right now, judy. >> woodruff: i think by far, gwen, the woman who knows the president of the united states better than anyone in 22-23-minute speech, it was a blend of the personal, the biographical, the political, the inspirational, and a call to arms. making almost a plea at the end there to people to recognize that they need to go out and work to get her husband elected for this country to move ahead and do what it can do and be what it can be. >> she is more in love with her house now than four years ago and probably hoping everybody in this room and outside this room was more in love as well. >> you're right. i think it was a genius speech, true genius. it was sophisticate sophisticate without ever once mentioning mitt romney's name, she drew a stark, graphic, dramatic contrast between the two lives. sh
the future for young americans! [ applause ] all these issues i know we're better off because president obama made the decisions he did. now, that brings me to health care. the republicans call it derisive leo bama care. they say it's a government fay over, a disaster if we just elect them they will repeal it. well, are they right? let's take a look at what's actually happened so far. first, individuals and businesses have already gotten more than a billion dollars in refunds from insurance companies because requires 80 to 85% of your premium to go to your health care not profits or promotions.

for president obama. >> different styles president obama will tend to come in a quite tight lawyerly way. president clinton likes to hear more of the discussion, to think things through. they end up in the same place in the sense they have gotten out of the people that work for them everything they know and they're making the decision based on fact and. >> we condition request john podesta former chief of staff for president clinton and director of transition. >> what's really critical is for him to frame the choice about what this election is about. 2 very, very different view tion and approaches to the us economy. he's got credibility about what works and what doesn't. i think he can remind people about what has worked for them in the past and set a path for the future. so i think one of the things that he will do is spend his time talking about the challenges that president obama faced, the way he responded to them, why those were the right choices. >> charlie:we conclude with jeff sell any of the new york times and john harris of politico. >> i think they're worried about what's goin

[crowd cheering] >> some of you, some of you may remember that earlier this year, republicans shut me out of a hearing on contraception. in fact, on that panel, they didn't hear from a single woman [crowd booing] even though they were debating an issue that affects nearly every woman. because it happened in congress, people noticed. but it happens all the time. noom women are shut out and silenced. so while i'm honored to be standing at this podium, it easily could have been any one of you. i'm here because i spoke out. [crowd cheering] and this november, each of us must speak out. during this campaign, we've heard about two

: if you felt that excitement when you voted for barack obama, shouldn't you feel that way now that he's president obama? (applause) you know there's sometng wrong with the kind of job he's done as president en t bst feeling you had was the say day you voted for him. president obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans.

tampa, and a relatively strong convention in some ways, and barack obama. and can remind people of that. we want our president to be a bigger than life, exciting figure. the last three people we elected fit that bill. and that is, again, a big advantage for barack obama, that he can use the stage to remind people of. >> rose: we continue with governor martin o'malley of larnd, arising star in the democratic party. >> i hope that we make the case that america's best days are still in front of us. if we continue to make better choices, if we continue to make the investments our parents and grandparents made in our nation so that we can create jobs, and expand opportunity. and that's what i hope comes out of this convention. and then there's a lot of cynicism in the world. and there are a lot of our neighbors who are still hurting. and a lot of us have stopped believing that america's best days are in front of us. and i hope what we're able to do is underscore those areas where we actually are making progress creating jobs and getting our country out of this bad recession. >> rose: we conc
to the american people. >> charlie:how do you think barack obama will be different in the second term if he wins? >> my sense is a re-election in many ways, not liberates but gives a president the opportunity to really deal long-term because they're not in the political gain as early. >> charlie:if in fact that's true, you must know the head and mind of this guy. where do you think he would like to take the kun trillion in a big way. in terms of whether it's relationshipness the middle east or economic model for the future? >> my sense is that strength in the economic model and making it fair. nothing happens if we don't deal with the long-term fiscal problems. you are not going to get economic growth that's sustainable if we don't solve the long-term fiscal problem. it's not as though we can kick the can and statementope we get economic growth. it will not happen if we don't -- i think he understands. in order to do all the other things he may want to do in energy and immigration and all these other things and to see some better opportunities for people, educational opportunities, it's not goin
the presidency. >> we continue this evening with a look at president obama from two people who have written extensively about him, they are peter baker of "the new york times" and jonathan alter. >> if you look at it just in terms of his accomplishments, if you go down the list of what got done in the first two years, he obliterates bill clinton in terms of achievements as law is passed which is often the way that presidents are judged, obviously clinton had a better economy and conditions of the country were better, he did better on deficit reduction. >> but in terms of changing the structure of government and laws with long-term impact on all kind of things that people don't even think about from mileage standards to stirring up tens of billions of dollars for student loans, for people who are going to college. >> and the end of obama care and nobody knows about it, there are about a dozen major accomplishments that compare favorably to lyndon johnson. >> politics, conventions and the president in context. when we continue. funding for charlie rose was provided by the following. captionin
